The Atlanta Braves face the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, August 30th at Citizens Bank Park for game three of a three-game series.
The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Atlanta Braves by the final score of 4-1 on Saturday night. The Phillies have now won the first two games of this series, and this upcoming game on Sunday will be the final game between these two teams during the regular-season series. The Phillies currently lead the season series 5-4, so game 10 will decide if the two teams will split or if the Phillies can win it 6-4. The Braves are now 18-14 on the year, which is still good for first place in the NL East. The Phillies improved to 14-14 on the year, which has them 2.0 games behind the Braves in the division standings.
The Atlanta Braves will send right-hander Huascar Ynoa to the mound to face the Phillies. Ynoa is 0-0 with a 4.32 ERA through his first 8.1 innings of the season with the Braves. Ynoa allowed one earned run through 2.0 innings in his last start against the Phillies. Ynoa has not pitched more than 3.0 innings this season, so expect him to be in an opener situation on Sunday.
The Philadelphia Phillies are bringing right-hander Jake Arrieta to the bump for Sunday's game. Arrieta is 2-3 with a 4.32 ERA through his first 25.0 innings of the season with the Phillies. Arrieta allowed only one earned run through 5.0 innings in his last start against the Nationals. Arrieta's performance against the Nats was a bounce back after two rough starts beforehand.
The line has not yet been released for this game, so be sure to check back soon for updates regarding the odds. In game three of this series, I expect the runs to pour on. Arrieta may have pitched well in his last outing, but I still am not completely impressed with him this year. I think the Phillies can score a run or two against Ynoa, and then taking advantage of the Braves bullpen throughout. We all know that the Phillies bullpen is also good to allow a few runs, so I will take the over here.
